Weekly Blog October 30, 2011

Well I am going to try this again .  I wrote a  statement but then when I tried to add the pictures I lost the statement.   It went somenting like this.  this week I had two crits in the same day, my BFA and my class crit. It was a lot to take in but I have had some time to absorb waht was said and to analyze why some comments were made.  Especially after seeing the pictures posted in the Ceramics blog I could see what I could not by looking just at the space. I think that I have a hard time taking up space that needs to be taken in order to make the body of work more espressive. Now that I have seen the pictures I see what was trying to be beaten into my head.  Since the crits I have a renewed energy to improve my work and to complete work that needs to be finished.  I realize that the extruded work needs much, much more to make a statment and I am going to begin working on this body of work on monday.  Sorry the pictures are not with this blog but I have had rtouble getting them together this week.   I am rambling and I am tired so tomorrow is a new day and I will start fresh and attempt to achieve great things.

This week I worked on my shark fin project and have the most of it finished except for the spoons.  I also worked on some of my cups, the rose, holly and lizard cups. And i am continuing with my extruded work .  Everything seems to be going ok but I worry about getting everything finished by the 27th for my crit.  I also worked in the gallery helping uninstalll the show. Patched and painted and now getting ready to help install the next one.
